Eugene Chukhlov has over 24 years of performance and teaching experience as a member of the Arlekin String Quartet (of which Crowden School faculty member Rem Djemilev is also a member). The quartet has been affiliated with the chamber music program at San Francisco State University for many years. In addition to his quartet duties, Eugene is applauded regularly as a soloist and orchestral player throughout the Bay Area. He counts Milly Rosner, Joan Balter, and the late Colin Hampton as his great mentors.
Eugene lives in El Sobrante with his daughter Alexandra Marie and wife Edith. He is an avid gardener, mainly roses and grapes (no wine this year though). He shares with his wife a passion for fishing California lakes and the South Pacific seas. They plan to retire in Kona, grow orchids, fish, paint watercolors, and perhaps give a few violin lessons to the local kids.
